Boston: Hilliard, Gray, Little and Wilkins, 1830. First edition, 12mo, pp. [4], 665, [2], followed by 18 engraved plates with geometrical sketches; original pink muslin, printed pictorial label on upper cover; muslin a bit sunned, else very good. American Imprints 30-1227. Probably by Louisa Davis Minot. AAS has a copy of A Method of Teaching Linear Drawing, Adapted to the Use of Public Schools, attributed to "the author of Easy Lessons in Perspective." A hand-written inscription on that copy just above the statement of responsibility attributes the work to "Mrs. Minot." According to James Jackson Minot in his Ancestors and Descendants of George Richards Minot (1936), p. 19, Louisa Davis Minot "drew and painted very well ... She was a writer ... Her popular treatise on perspective is admirable for the exactness and clearness of its instruction." Item #51146
